Photo TR: Efteling (the Netherlands)


Recommended Posts

Ah, the Efteling... Such a beautiful park! I'm really in love with it and everytime I visit it, I'm stunned by it's beauty.

 

Even though the weather wasn't great (rain in the morning) we still had a day packed with fun! The lines were OK so we rode all the coasters (some of them twice), did some flat rides, had some good snacks, blah blah blah!

 

I'm not good at words so I'll let the pics speak for themselves. Enjoy!

Yo mister! You might want to do something about the smell of your breath!

Ah, the Little Mermaid!

Another caption could be "BOOBS!"

The Troll King!

He talks nonsense but he's made by the creators of "Spitting Image" so he's cool!

It's a Vekoma with good loopings, the corkscrews are just OK.

321353325_Efteling08047.jpg.afd5211e02ef046f7879b912c5789d49.jpg

The camera made this pic on his own with the self-timer and we thought it turned out great!

The jump house!

Liesbeth is jumping but Annemie is all "Meh, whatever..."

1476057502_Efteling08043.jpg.48bb8fd329bcb3e7073b092da9532942.jpg

We also checked out the houses by foot.

It's really fun to discover what's inside (although this one was totally empty)

1985117290_Efteling08041.jpg.5e46c3be86876aba841c5f851c0b8eb1.jpg

Hey! Stop following us!!

Let's ride around in the snail-monorail!

612345533_Efteling08029.jpg.1ef5d84a5fce9aa97d99dc4f52daf31d.jpg

Lady, I would appreciate it if you make them stop puking water all over the place!

Liesbeth and Nelle having fun on the pirate ship.

They sat in the second row (pussies!) while Annemie and I were in the top row. It was my first time on a pirate ship and boy, this one goes very high! Wheeeee!

A train climbing the lift hill of Pegasus.

A cute coaster but we rode it only once and that was enough! A bit painful in the back seat...

SKLOOOSH!

That's the reward you get when you escaped...

Going down!

My very first attempt making onride pics and only one came out good...

1784287928_Efteling08072.jpg.033cdaec3ba6d3cef4d3196461c90558.jpg

This is the queue area.

The pic is a bit dark but I think it perfectly shows the atmosphere. It really feels like you're waiting in a harbour from the Golden Age!

876562476_Efteling08085.jpg.c9748e70528896a1d1da8d20d6d015d7.jpg

Time to ride the Flying Dutchman!

This is the über-themed entrance building.

Liesbeth checks the map to see where we go next. Hm, I hope she knows what she's doing...

Here's Hugo, the owner of the place, warning us that his house is cursed!

Down is up and up is down!

1135191804_Efteling08008.jpg.c3383d35dbe960713d2e7266da3aee72.jpg

A tiny troll in the bushes and some elves sitting in a tree...

(this is the only pic of Dream Flight that came out good)

850023098_Efteling08006.jpg.6159448e96eac4d3d77e24c05b7db15b.jpg

We immediately went to Dream Flight since the lines can be very long.

Liesbeth and Annemie are very excited to meet elves, trolls and other riff-raff!

1633894083_Efteling08004.jpg.20e53e2cf1a9a99e9e6ae89099d267e2.jpg

Yay! We arrived unscathed!

A coach full of blurry but happy people!
